ロッテルダム:入港中の船上でのコンテナ固縛作業の制限

ロッテルダム港規則 (11_4_1)では、岸壁係留中で船員が乗船する全長170m以内の船舶のみが、船上でのラッシング作業を実施することができるとしています。全長170mを超える場合、同作業は認可を受けた現地業者が実施しなければなりません。本規則を施行するため、9月1日より検査が開始されました。規則に違反した場合、罰金が科せられますが金額は不明です。

Under the Port of Rotterdam Regulation (11.4.1), only crew onboard vessels under 170 m in length moored alongside the quay are allowed to undertake lashing operations onboard. For vessels longer than 170 m, such operations must be carried out by licensed shore based lashing companies.

In April 2020, a new Port Regulation (11.4.1a) was introduced prohibiting vessels from lashing/ unlashing containers onboard while the vessels are underway in the harbour basins and fairways of the port, to prevent accidents from what is considered to be a very unsafe practice.  

Inspections to enforce the above Regulations commenced on 1 September 2021. While the main focus currently appears to be on vessels under 170 m, all vessels in the port may be subject to inspection. Any violation of the regulations will result in fines the limits of which are as yet undetermined.
